Fourth of the City's Quota of
. $20,0001or Palestine Col
onization FuncfRaised
at Meeting.
Before a representative assem
blage of over 2.000 Omaha Jews. Dr.
A. S. Wolf of St. Louis, Zionist lead
er, and for two years secretary to
Dr. Theodore Ilerzl, founder of the
Zionist movement, made an impas
sioned plea for funds to begin the
work of Jewish colonization in Pal
estine. He spoke at the Nineteenth
and Burt street synogogue Sunday
Omaha s quota was Set at $20,0(10
and immediately after the discourse
a fourth of the quota was raised in
the audience.
Dr. Wolf briefly described the
age-long struggles of the Jews of the
world for a homeland. The Zionist
movement is the concrete expression
of their aspirations, he stated.
"Every one' of the great world
powers has promised to do the ut
most for life, realization of a Jew
ish homeland," he continued. "The
Zionists have been the guardians of
the Jewish ideals since W)7. While
the. Jews of the world wercrfiink in
apathy and indifference, the Zionists
struggled for Palestine. We want
every Jew' to become a Zionist, then
Zionism can be eliminated and Juda
ism take its place.
Palestine Only Haven.
"Palestine is the onl land to
which the war-stricken Jews of Rus
sia, Poland and the Balkan countries
can emigrate. It is practically cer
tain that the gates of America, will
be barred to all emigrants for the
next five years. Lack of transporta
tion facilities alone will make it im
possible for emigrants to come to
this country. England, France and
Italy are even now advocating the
passage of emigration laws which
will make it impossible for Jews" to
settle there.
"Only Palestine remains and if
$3,000,000 is not raised by the UuiteM
States, that country also will be
closed to the Jews now being per
secuted in Russia. Poland and the
Balkan states. The $.1,000,000 .will
be utilized in establishing a respon
sible Jewish government in Pales
tine. It will also be used in relieving
the suffering among the 48 Jewish
colonies already established in Pal
estine;' - T

Great .Actions Committee of the
Zionist organization and president
of the St. Louis Zionist .council in
1917. He is now chairman of the St.

We are loggy, sluggish, our sys

bowels are clogged with foodwaste,
which is .filling the blood with poi

Stop it! Your druggist has a

quickly and pleasantly, empty the
bowels, including the lower bowel,

Baker Favors League
to Make Safe Path for
His Boy in the World
Portland, March 16. At a dinner
in his honor here iast night, Secre
tary of War Baker made an ad
dress strongly pleading for tlc pro
posed league of nations. President
Wilson, he declared, was now in a
strange land, fighting for the
noblest cause ever striven for by any
"If the peace conference does no
more than to set new boundaries
for the nations we shall have the
world war to fight over again," he
declared. "Let America say to all
peoples that the powers have at
last gotten together , to free the
world from fear of such recurrences.
The league of nations is necessary
to do this."
Speaking of the horrors of war,
the secretary said:
"I have an only son. a boy of 10
years. He is the hope of my fu
ture, but I would as willingly see
him dead now as to know that he
must die in another world war. I
want to be able to tell him that I
have made his path as safe as I
could." Organ Recital Sunday

Wilson's Covenant
Doomed to Failure,
Avers Col. Harvey
Chicago, March 16. Col. George
Harvey, editor of the North Amer
ican Review, in an address before
a gathering of bankers last night, de
clared the league of nations coven
ant as drawn "is doomed to failure,"
but that "the substance of the plan
has not been and will not be aban
doned." .
! "The president is so fully com
mitted to the project and so firmly
convinced of the support of the peo
ple that a test of the sentiment of
the country is inevitable," said Col
onel Harvey. "Whether he will
succeed in convincing the delegates
of the other powers of his ability
to so entwine the league notion with
the peace treaty proper as to en
able him to coerce the senate seems
doubtful, but failing that, there is
hardly a question of his fetching
home some kind of proposition up
on which to raise a definite issue
before the country.

Never before have people demanded and enjoyed so many modern

The IDEAL ARCOLA takes the place of a 'parior stove. But a stove wastes

The beauty of the IDEAL ARCOLA method is that no cellar is needed. Everything is on one floor. The ARCOLA

Working Together in Both
Civic and Religions Activi
ties to Be Idea of Next
"Doing things together will be the "
cry of the next'eentury, both in re
ligious and civic life," said Mrs.
Janet Wallace Curtis at the First
Unitarian church, Sunday.
Mrs, Curtis was formerly teach
er in the Omaha High school and
has only recently returned from
Massachusetts. She filled the pulpit
in the absence of Rev. Mr. Leavens.
In her talk on "Active Tolerance."
Mrs. Curtis made a plea to all '
churches to overcome the bigotries
that had separated denominations
and people through these centuries.
"Each creed ca"n. learn something
from its neighbor," said Mrs. Cur
tis. "The Unitarian church was
founded in revolt against feeling
and beauty; music was barred but
re-admitted; form was abolished,
but one by one churches are again
adopting processionals and ceremon
ials, l-.veu the Unitarians, who re
volted against feeling in religion,
have learned that the function of
beauty is to arouse feelings and that
they had best stop before they do
exclude it. 1
''Tolerance of old cests and tra
ditions is not the only considera
tion in the new 'actively tolerant
"New sects, such as Christian
jcience find New Thought, are.
pringine up and have in their creed
and profession that which the older
churches should know, not only by
books but by exchanging congrega
tions with them at various times.
New evangical creeds express a vital
fellowship with God and humanity
that is lost in the older sects."
